Team-Driven Shared Leadership

MTSS Team-Driven Shared Leadership Logo

Component Definition:

Teaming processes and structures that focus on distributing responsibility and shared decision-making across and within regions, districts, and schools to effectively design and use systems of training, coaching, resources, implementation, and evaluation.

 

Practice Profile

The five COMTSS core components are the foundation and the underlying philosophy of the Practice Profiles. The COMTSS Practice Profiles were developed to specify exemplary strategies that district and school implementation teams can use to support effective and sustainable use of the COMTSS framework as intended. These profiles guide and inform the development and/or refinement of the necessary supports and resources for the COMTSS implementation, such as professional learning, coaching, identification of fidelity measures, a state-level evaluation plan, and necessary changes in procedures and policy.

Consideration to desired outcomes

Team-driven shared leadership creates authentic opportunities for shared responsibility, buy-in, and inclusivity that contribute to alignment and cohesion across the educational system in support of effective and sustainable implementation of MTSS and positive learner outcomes.
